833. The Bride
 
By Ambrose Bierce
 
 
“YOU know, my friends, with what a brave carouse
I made a second marriage in my house,—
  Divorced old barren Reason from my bed
And took the Daughter of the Vine to spouse.”
 
So sang the Lord of Poets. In a gleam        5
Of light that made her like an angel seem,
  The Daughter of the Vine said: “I myself
Am Reason, and the Other was a Dream.”
